Normal Hard Drive Vs. Surveillance Hard Drive

Normal Hard Drive Vs. Surveillance Hard Drive

To the layman, all hard drives are the same, but this assumption is wrong. A normal hard drive is not usually best suited to fulfill the needs of a surveillance system, and thus they can not be interchangeably used without incurring certain limitations.

For example; a normal hard drive is designed to operate  for a period of say 8 hours daily for a 5 or 6 day week, thus it has low to moderate performance capabilities. This makes them vulnerable to a low average time usage and time lapse between failures.
